BPL Global has been crowned “Best Trade Credit Broker” in the 2013 Trade & Forfaiting Review Excellence Awards, completing a clean sweep of the year’s leading industry awards. It comes after Trade Finance magazine’s readers voted the company “Best Insurance Broker in Trade”, for the fifth successive year, and after winning “Best Trade Credit and Political Risk Insurance Broker” at the GTR Leaders in Trade Awards.

In a hotly-contested category, the TFR awards saw BPL Global beat Marsh and Willis into second and third places respectively. It is the second time that the company has been recognised by all three of the industry’s leading awards in the same year.

Commenting on the achievement, Charles Berry, chairman of BPL Global, said “To be recognised with these awards is a great endorsement of our specialised approach, and of our dedication to making sure that the political risk insurance market works for our policyholder clients. But, more than that, it is also a great acknowledgement of the resilience of the PRI market itself which, despite global economic troubles and social and political unrest in the Middle East, has continued to perform strongly – paying claims and continuing to write its non-cancellable policies.”
